you have jurors that still believe the victim blame that aren't educated when they go into their jury box. so they still lean -- especially women, they still lean towards the male perpetrators of the violence. so although these tweets certainly help, we also have to educate the people in the jury box. we also have to educate the parents. and especially the academic institutions that hired these coaches, that allowed these coaches to stay, that allowed this whole culture to permeate. >> dr. drew, we have two elements to this. we have many elements, but two specific elements. what happened before the actual incident and during the incident itself, the crime. and then what happened after. everything that everyone posted online, all the blaming of the victim, all the sharing of the videos. and i want to ask you this. >> yeah. >> we as grown-ups seem to have problems stopping and filtering our meanness between our fingers and our tweets. we are doing a terrible job at that. you can just log onto my twitter account and see what people say about me and what kind of words they've used. they'v
